6884 Orff Curriculum & Design

This class will help you organize all of the Orff material and ideas received in level-education classes into a cohesive curriculum, and show you how to implement it in an organized way throughout the school year. Be prepared to teach one 30-minute lesson in the Orff process. The Orff approach will also be compared with the Danielson Framework for Teaching to help you be more successful in your professional evaluations. Students should bring soprano recorders.
